Course Outline:

Supplier risk management has recently emerged as an important area for risk management. As globalization has changed the business world drastically this past century, companies now have complex global networks from which they buy and sell products.

Given this, Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business conducted research to determine supplier risk management practices. Their findings are based on interviews with 33 companies including KPMG, Johnson & Johnson, Coca Cola, and IBM to name a few.

Historically, supplier risk management hasn’t made the priority list as other functions have such as sales, marketing, and product development. However, several events have begun to shift the tide towards supplier risk management practices. Consider the following examples.
• Nissan and Toyota experienced considerable disruptions in the supply chain as several tsunamis have hit Japan in recent years.
• McDonald’s sources their meat through OSI. In 2014, it was uncovered that one of OSI’s partners was packaging expired meat
• More current, the construction companies collusion identified and penalized by the Competition Commission and lastly
• The big banks, colluding regarding price fixing.
Supply chain disruptions and supplier quality controls are just two examples of risks associated with supply chains. Other risks to consider are labour issues, weather, supplier reputation, and sustainability.

The course includes a brief overview of the current topical legislation (internationally and locally) that impacts on businesses today. With the Supply Chain under constant attacks regarding clean corporate governance, this risk can longer be ignored. This is also relevant for Public Sector as this is a topic on the agenda for Government, with their current strategy of “Open Tenders”. This has also been imbedded in the National Treasury Guide for Accounting Officers: February 2004.

KING IV is clear about Ethics, Corruption and Corporate Citizenship and organisations therefore need to understand the implications these may have on Supply Chain Processes.
